Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

I thought it would be interesting to see what everybody's own individual look is! Here's a challenge for you: List a max of 10 steps that include your skincare routine as well as your makeup routine to complete your everyday look. I know some of us may use more steps in the morning, but try your best to make ten. Please include the products you use and your skin type (i.e. normal, dry, oily, combo) And remember... “The best color in the whole world, is the one that looks good, on you!” -Coco Chanel




Skin type - Combo 

1.) Ocean Salt cleanser by LUSH

2.) Tea Tree Toner by LUSH

3.) Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

4.) Revlon Photo Ready Concealer in light/medium 

5.) Tarte BB Cream in light

6.) MAC Eye Shadow in espresso (brow filler)

7.) Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Blissful

Good luck! Smiley Happy

Re: Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

I don't cleanse my skin in the morning, only at night so as not to overdry.  Overdrying triggers extra oil for me.

2. Sunscreen

3. BB Cream or Bare Minerals Foundation

4. UD Primer Potion

5. Bare Minerals eyeshadow

6. Gel eyeliner

7. Bare Minerals True all over face color

7. Mascara

8. Lip (sometimes stain, sometimes a balm, other days a lipstick).

Re: Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

Skin type: Oily


1. Cleanse with Clarisonic - AcneFree Cleanser

2. Tone - alba salicylic acid toner

3. Treat - Kate Somerville AntiBac

4. Moisturize - Dermalogica Active Moist

5. Prime - Smashbox Light or Benefit Porefessional

6. Foundation - Tarte Amazonian Clay in Ivory 

7. Counceal - Tarte Maracuja in Fair

8. Blush - Varies; Tarte Exposed is a favorite

9. Mascara - Buxom Lash for now

10. Lips - Varies on my mood. The Fresh Sugars are top notch, though.


That's it normally! Yay! If II'm feeling fancy, you could throw in:


11. Eyeshadow base

12. Eyeshadow or liner or both

13. Highlighter

14. Bronzer

Re: Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

It's so funny you posted this, because my current goal right now is to decrease the amount of steps it takes me to get ready (and make my makeup bag less bulky as I travel quite frequently!)


So, here it goes...


Skin type: Oily, acne-prone


1. Cleanse with Skinmedica Purifying Foaming Wash or Vivete Exfoliating Cleanser (it really depends on my skin that day).


2. Moisturize with JM Argan Oil


3.Cover FX Total Cover Cream Foundation OR Loreal Truematch mineral powder for days when I need less coverage


4.Lancome Star Bronzer


5. Tarte Cheekstain in Tickeld (p.s. just looked on the sephora site to verify my color and noticed Tipsy isn't listed in the color selection?! Is this being discontinued? Or did I just miss it?!)


6. Highlight with Loreal Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer (ONLY as a highlighter on cheek & brow bones, cupids bow, inner corner of eyes) OR TheBalm MaryLouManizer 


7. Liner with Ardency Inn Punker liquid eyeliner (either on top waterline or minimal cat eye)


8. Covergirl Lashblast Fusion mascara in Black on top and bottom


9. Nars Eyeshadow duo in charade (sometimes i'll use a combination of these two on my lower lash line and/or in the crease of my eyes)


10. Lips in either Burts Bees Lip Shine in Pucker OR LipFusion plumper gloss in glow OR YSL Volupte Sheer Candy in in 04


Ahh, but there are also steps like: Curling lashes, filling in brows, re-applying to ares that need more color/coverage,etc.


Great post!


Re: Can you complete your look in 10 steps or less?

Nice routine! I think you just missed the Tipsy color, its still there. I'm trying to get my makeup bag down for traveling as well, but its too difficult with all the lippies. I can't pick just one or two for that matter!
